PaulC's New Town Names

PaulC's New Town Names

This is the all-new release thread for my various town name projects. I have a few older grfs which I hope to eventually update and post here, but for now they can still be found in the old development thread and I'm mostly going to focus on some new stuff.

All town name sets will use real place names and some will be quite modest in size - no fancy random name generators that give you a billion different combinations! Expect a few quirky and unusual sets with some tongue-twisting town names, some grf's you never knew you needed and possibly some you don't... 8)

Contents
Austrian Town Names v1.0 (13 Jan 2018)
Azerbaijani Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Belgian Town Names v2.0 (24 Jan 2012)
Christmas Town Names v1.0 (24 Dec 2018)
East Prussian Town Names v1.0 (13 Jan 2018)
Faroese Town Names v1.0 (2 Feb 2012)
Game of Thrones Town Names v1.0 (24 Dec 2018)
Greenlandic Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Hawai'ian Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Latin Town Names v1.0 (13 Apr 2012) *coded by oberhümer*
Maltese Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Mongolian Town Names v1.1 (25 Dec 2017)
Moroccan Town Names v1.0 (11 Feb 2018)
Quebecois Town Names v1.0 (6 Jan 2018)
Sami Town Names v1.0 (1 Feb 2012)

Some older GRFs posted elsewhere on the forum...
Alaskan Town Names v1.0 (28 Nov 2007)
British Town Names v2.1 (11 Nov 2007)
Slovenian Town Names v1.0 (19 Feb 2010)
South African Town Names v1.0 (6 Nov 2007)
South Korean Town Names v1.0 (27 Jan 2010)
Welsh Town Names v1.0 (12 Sep 2006)

Compatibility
As of 2017, any new releases will be for OpenTTD only. Older town name grfs should work just fine in either OpenTTD or TTDPatch, but see also this next bit...

Font characters
All font characters used in these grfs are included in OpenTTD since 1.2.0 or r23582, and in OpenGFX since 0.4.0. If you're using older versions of these then a few characters will be missing in some grfs. If you're using any other fonts besides those in the base set then you're on your own.

There is currently no support for the extra font characters in TTDPatch, but if anyone needs it then let me know and I'll code something. Maybe. Or you can try OpenGFX 0.4 for TTDPatch.

Translations
Translations will be most welcome if anyone feels like doing them, and I'll post the english.lng file with each grf just in case. There's not much to translate, just the grf description and the menu name really.

Licence
Unless stated otherwise, all grfs posted in this topic are licensed GPL v2 (if released 2017 or later) or CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 (if posted 2012 or earlier).

Problems, feedback, suggestions, general comments?
Post 'em in this topic.

Something a bit different... This set contains 160 place names from Sápmi (or Lapland if you prefer); about half of these places are in Norway, the rest in Sweden, Finland and Russia, and all names are in the Northern Sami language of the indigenous population.

Mind doing some Roman names? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:R ... by_country)
I'm sort-of-working on a Latin translation of OpenTTD, which it would suit very well.

Qubecois Town Names v1.0

A larger set of 1,211 place names from the Canadian province of Quebec. Names include municipalities, unorganised territories and aboriginal local municipal units. A few longer names (e.g. Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague-du-Cap-Tourmente) had to be left out because OpenTTD has a 31 character limit on town names.

Where did you found the latin names ? Where is aquilia in vestinis ? I don't find aquila in vestinis or just aquila.

The Latin Town Names were done by oberhümer rather than me so I don't know what source was used for the list. Aquilia in Vestinis is the Latin name for L'Aquila in Italy, have a look at List of Latin place names in Italy and Malta on Wikipedia for example. Hope that answers your question.

Eh, I don't know why he chose to post his grf in my topic rather than create his own (not that I mind). All of the others in this topic are by me. It's all clearly stated in the top post.
